Bhava Yoga - Russill Paul
A traditionalist with an ear for pop, Russill Paul is one of the yoga world's most powerful devotional chanters and musicians. He works within the Indian classical music realm to create beautiful pieces that lift the spirit and provide a supportive environment for asana practice, chanting, or just relaxing. This is the third volume of his "Yoga of Sound" series, and features chants and mantras from a variety of sources, including Hindu and Sufi. Customary Indian flutes and percussion blend with more modern instrumentation and production, resulting in a timeless and universal sound. Paul's melodious, deep voice is a pleasure to listen to, although extensive liner notes and instructions for chanting encourage active participation.
